There are 4 comments on What Voters’ Sweat Levels, Facial Expressions, Reveal about Their Feelings for Candidates

  1. This study is flawed. They had 22 registered voters participate from a college campus located in a state that consistently votes blue in presidential elections. Finding out that Bernie Sanders is a favorite candidate among college students that are straddled with student loan debt isn’t really a shocking conclusion. It also definitely cannot be extrapolated out to the wider population in the US. Do this same experiment in a closely contested battleground state among working adults and these study results will look 100% different.

  2. Love how the email I got says physical tells suggest Bernie could win the election. Very misleading considering the article barely even says that and the study was done on only 22 people and only 1 republican.

  3. I’m so very curious about the negative reactions to Elizabeth Warren, especially, as the article states, this study was conducted in Massachusetts. It was also puzzling to me that Warren wasn’t able to win MA during the presidential primaries there. Wish there was more insight provided in this article. The people who participated were responding to questions as their biometric readings were being taken. Why not include the questions and answers? That might helped us understand the physiological results.
